Finding eBooks at the Library just got easier!

Your library's collection is in Google!

Post Date:11/10/2017 8:53 AM

Just in case you didn’t know…… 

Google has made life a little easier for those who like to check out e-books from your local library. Now, when you search for a book through Google, the library collection is listed as a search result. WOOHOO!

Perform a Google search for any book title, scroll down on the right side of the page and what do you see? Yep, there we are. The LSW Consortium link brings you directly to our Overdrive site! TOO COOL, right? 

Example: search for Rooster Bar by John Grisham

Notice on the right hand side there's a column with more information on where you might purchase or borrow this book.

Calcasieu Parish Public Library is listed within that column. Follow the arrow to get more details on placing a hold or find out which location has the book right now for pickup.
